There's areal blockbuster meeting ahead at Tullyroan Oval this Sunday (September 24th) when two of Ulster's most attractive formulas, the National Hot Rods and National Bangers, share top billing.

The National Hot Rods are the fastest cars on the ovals, and they line up to contest the sixth round of Hankook Performance Tyres World Series NI. Recently crowned British Champion John Christie returns to the scene of his triumph three weeks ago, and whilst he will be keen for a repeat win there are a whole host capable of challenging for the honours. Round 5 winner Adam Heatrick, World Series NI leader Derek Martin, Adam Hylands, Mark Heatrick, reigning NI Champion Shane Murray, Glenn Bell and Jaimie McCurdy will be amongst those hoping to grab the chequered flag, with McCurdy also defending his lead in the Cirrus Plastics DMC Race Promotions Points Championship. 2016 World Champion Adam Maxwell also returns to domestic action for this one, with Cork driver Jeff Riordan a welcome visitor too.

The Unlimited National Bangers will be contesting Nutshaker 2017, with action aplenty and bis crashes guaranteed. After losing out last season after almost owning the title in recent years, Coleraine's Kieran McIvor will be keen to regain his crown, but as always will face stiff opposition. Local Points Champion Leonard Dunn has been in fine form this term, and alongside Stevo McGrath, Jonny Murdock, Darren Gaffney and Davy Patton to name a few are sure to challenge. The drivers will be allowed to turn around on the bends in this event within designated 'turning zones' which should increase the spectacle! The day will finish off with the last car moving Destruction Derby for The Stephen Bannon Memorial Trophy.

The 2.0 Hot Rods contest the Grand Final of the Hoosier Racing Tires Challenge Series, with Antrim's Stephen Emerson a hot favourite having won both rounds so far. Points gained in Sunday's heats will be added to those gained in the series so far to determine the grid for the final, with a number of race tyres up for grabs courtesy of Hoosier UK. Stuart Cochrane, Allen Cherry, Sean Dynes, Glenn Bell and Brian Cherry will be others keen to grab victory, with Republic of Ireland racers Ian Riordan and Aidan Hallahan also booked in to appear.

The stars of tomorrow in the Ninja Karts and Junior Productions complete the line up, with the first race at the meeting, kindly sponsored by Wilson Motors and Ray McGrath Transport, blasting off the grid at 2pm.

In our latest points update, the final World Championship Qualifying tables for Superstox and Rookie Bangers have now been published.

In the Superstox season long chase to qualify for the World Championship final at Ipswich next month, Denver Grattan came out on top ahead of Lee Davison after both had excellent campaigns.

In the Rookie Bangers, Sammy Fisher has proved to be the find of the season and his great form sees him take the win after some excellent racing of late. Christy Bradley just pipped Pater McKenna-Murray to the second and final spot on the World Championship grid at Ipswich in November. Hopes are high for some more excellent Rookie Banger racing at our New Year meeting and into 2018 with the numbers set to improve even more.

Portadown star Nigel Jackson made his first appearance of the season at Aghadowey Oval last Saturday night, and sensationally landed the Lightning Rods King of Aghadowey title! Gareth Robinson from Cullybackey was also a King of Aghadowey winner in the Thunder Rods, whilst other feature race wins at the meeting, sponsored by Faulkner Plumbing & Heating of Portstewart, were Chris McArdle (Superstox), Adam White (ProStocks) and Trevor Farrell (Rookie Bangers).

Former World Champion Scott Cochrane got the jump early on in the opening Lightning Rods heat, making full use of the wide outside line on a very slippery track to gain an advantage that would ultimately land him the win. Ricky Shaw got the better of Irish Champion Richard Stewart to grab second as the cars tiptoed around on a wet track that was also awash with oil from a previous race. Returnee Nigel Jackson got back to winning ways in heat two after relegating early pacesetter Mark McCambridge, Nigel taking the win over McCambridge and European Champion Jordan Rochford.
With Jackson and Cochrane tied on points, it was Nigel who won the toss to land pole position for the King of Aghadowey final. As Jackson settled into the lead, Cochrane got relegated on the tough outside groove which allowed Rochford and Shaw through on the inside. But this one was all about Jackson, Nigel signalling his return to the fold with a super win ahead of Rochford and Cochrane.

The circuit for the opening Thunder Rods heat was very slippery indeed after the earlier oil deposit, but it was Gareth Robinson who coped best to charge through to a clear win. John Goligher was showing very well too from towards the rear of the line up, with second place his reward for a great effort. Goligher made no mistake in the second qualifier, taking a clear win ahead of his son Josh with Davy Wilson in third.
John Goligher and Robinson shared the front row for the King of Aghadowey final, with Wilson and an impressive Steven Elder on row two. Robinson made the best get away, but took his life in his hands by chopping hard across the bows of Goligher to snatch the lead. They both survived what could have been a nasty moment, with Robinson then edging clear and Wilson moving into second. As the laps dwindled away the leader encountered some heavy traffic which allowed Wilson to close, but Gareth had all under control to race home to the King of Aghadowey crown, and this time thankfully with no dramas in post race scrutineering!. Wilson and Irish Champion Samuel Montgomery filled out the podium places.

David Beattie led the opening Superstox heat away, with the whole field soon slowed to a crawl as Cyril Hawe's motor deposited all its oil on an already wet track! Beattie went out and Chris McArdle went ahead, but he was knocked from the lead by a flying Lee Davison who was coping admirably with some of the worst track conditions seen in many years. Behind Davison, Gary Grattan and Sean mark filled the top places. Things were slightly better for heat two, with McArdle this time making no mistake to land the victory, despite Denver Grattan closing late on.
McArdle worked his way past his fellow yellow graders to hit the front early in the final to build an impressive lead, and despite the hard charging Grattan brothers making advances as the race progressed Chris was able to hang on for the silverware. His heat and final brace of wins also earn him a rise to the blue grade for the next meeting.

The new car of Dylan Booth made the running for much of the opening ProStocks heat, before being punted aside on the final bend by British Champion Adam White. Adam took the win in some style ahead of Booth and Dan Shannon. Heat two was all about Norman Purdy, the Ballybogey man charging ahead to take the win over Karl Smyth and Mark McLaughlin.
Booth got himself out front again in the feature race final, but was unfortunately disqualified for health and safety reasons due to a damaged bumper on his car. Purdy took up the running but had no answer when White came calling, Adam scything past to complete his double for the evening. Steven Haugh and Smyth filled out the podium places.

A smaller than usual field of Rookie Bangers contested their final World Championship qualifier, but they produced three thrilling races. Sammy Fisher took the lead in heat one but was spun out by the might of Team Sour, which allowed Paul O'Connor to take the win ahead of Deano McGrath. Fisher came back in style to win heat two after despatching McGrath from the top spot.
The final was their best race of the evening, and it was Trevor Farrell who held on despite all manner of efforts to remove him from the top spot. He took the winner's trophy ahead of Fisher and O'Connor.

Less than a week after capturing the Leslie Dallas Memorial Trophy in the National Hot Rods, Portadown's Glenn Bell claimed victory in the Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy for the 2.0 Hot Rods at Tullyroan Oval on Saturday night. All five formulas on show at the Greers Volvo sponsored meeting produced some excellent racing, with Calvin Blake (1300 Stock Cars), Davy Wilson (Thunder Rods), Jonny Cardwell (Stock Rods) and Daniel Stewart (Ninja Karts) the other feature race winners.

The second running of the magnificent Lee Cherry Memorial Trophy, held in memory of the much missed former racer, was the prize on offer for the 2.0 Hot Rods. Dungannon ace Adam Best got a great run on the outside line to wrestle the lead from pole sitter Feargal McNally in the opening heat, Adam going on to claim victory as McNally just held off a spirited challenge from Stephen Emerson for second. The reversed grid second heat saw former World Champion Adam Hylands take up the running on his return to the class, before a caution period when Emerson deposited fluid all over the Tullyroan end. Hylands then made an uncharacteristic slip on the tricky track at the resumption, allowing defending title holder Allen Cherry to nip past for the win over Glenn Bell and Best.
Best set off in the lead in the final, with Bell immediately trying every trick in his repertoire to get past. He drew alongside a number of times, before a caution period when McNally had a huge crash on the Annaghmore Bend. Best led them away as an absolutely terrific scrap resumed, before Best hit electrical trouble and dropped off the pace. Bell inherited the lead and took a well earned victory over Emerson and Stuart Cochrane.

The all action 1300 Stock Cars were contesting the Grand Final of the Ryan Wright Signs Iron Man Series, with Gracehill's Peter Greer racing clear of the bumper action behind him to take the opener over Jon McQuillan, the latter having survived a last bend attack. Greer repeated the dose in heat two, relieving a returning Tommy McCrory Senior of the lead to again lead McQuillan home. The closed grid final based on points scored across the series saw McQuillan hit the front early on as polesitter Michael Logan got punted aside. Irish Champion Ivan Elliott was slowly reeling in the leader, and all the while Calvin Blake and Greer were closing fast too. A grandstand finish looked odds on, with Elliott diving in with the bumper into the final bend. He only succeeded in taking both himself and McQuillan out of the race, opening the way for Blake to race through for the biggest win of his career. As Calvin took the well deserved honours, Greer and Willie Stewart followed him over the line with all three receiving tyres and trophies courtesy of the series and meeting sponsors.

One of the biggest fields of the season graced the Tullyroan circuit for the Thunder Rods Tullyroan Challenge Cup, the usually Aghadowey-based class enjoying their first outing of the year at DMC Race Promotions Co Tyrone venue. Heat One saw Ballymena's Daniel Rodgers take an impressive win, even surviving a mid race caution for debris to lead home Londonderry's Johnny Pollock and Cullybackey's Davy Wilson. Irish Champion Samuel Montgomery from Limavady was the star of heat two, racing clear to take the chequered flag over Ryan Campbell and Wilson.
Wilson's consistency saw him on pole position for the Tullyroan Challenge Cup final, with Montgomery alongside on the front row. After some frantic opening laps, Wilson held sway at the front over fellow Cullybackey man Gareth Robinson and Graham Young. Montgomery got the better of Young to go third, but the destination of the title was to be fought out between Wilson and Robinson. Gareth tried every trick in the book to unseat the leader, but Wilson was equal to his every move and took the honours after a great night's racing. Robinson and Montgomery filled the podium.

Arguably the stars of what was a great meeting were the Stock Rods, with Stuart Agnew leading the way early on in all three of their races. The former ProStocks World Cup Champion is adapting to his new surroundings very quickly indeed, holding a resolute inside line and inviting the rest to find a way past. The opening heat quickly turned into a huge scrap for the lead, with Ballymena stalwart Victor McAfee producing a great run right around the difficult outside line to grab a superb win over Shane McMillan and former World Champ Stevie McNiece. Heat two saw Ben McCully sparkle as he was the man to lift the honours after another great race, leading home Jonny Cardwell and McNiece.
If the two heats were great, the final was nothing short of amazing, with Agnew again the man out front early on. By half distance the pack were on him, and it was Cardwell who spent lap after lap on the outside before slipping ahead to the lead. If the fans thought that was it over they were badly mistaken, as Shane McMillan came on a charge right around the outside to go second and quickly challenge Cardwell for the lead. Despite Shane getting alongside, it was Cardwell who took the win by a fraction, with World Champion Marc Morrell also getting a great outside line burst to grab third over Derek McMillan.

The young stars in the Ninja Karts completed the programme, with Lauren Berry driving really well to lead the opening heat until almost half distance. She unfortunately then had a spin on the back straight, opening the way for Max Hobson to take a great win over Daniel Stewart and Stewart Hanna. Berry again impressed in heat two, before once again Hobson rushed by to take up the running. He had no answer to the flying Stewart though, the Portadown lad sweeping past to take the win in some style over Hobson and Corey Stirling.
In the final Berry led for the opening six laps, before once again being challenged by Hobson. As they tussled for the lead, Stewart was catching fast from the rear of the grid, Daniel slipping past both frontrunners in one fell swoop to race home to the Greers Volvo sponsored trophy. Stirling came through for second at the flag ahead of Hobson and Hanna.
